SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Two people were shot overnight near Belmont Park and the shooter is still on the loose.

A 20-year-old pedestrian got into an argument with the occupants of a sedan in the parking lot at 3000 Mission Blvd. just after 12 a.m. Saturday, San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims said.

Officer Heims said a black male - standing about 6-feet tall, with skinny build, and wearing a black hoodie - got out of the vehicle and walked toward the pedestrian. The vehicle then circled around and the suspect got back into the vehicle.

After getting back into the sedan, the suspect leaned out the car's window and fired several rounds at the pedestrian, Officer Heims said. The victim was struck in the hand, receiving minor injuries. He was not taken to a hospital.

A 19-year-old female pedestrian was also struck by the gunfire in the left leg. She was transported to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect sedan was last seen driving eastbound on W. Mission Bay Dr, according to Officer Heims.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. Callers can remain anonymous.
